Things that make me angrrrrry!

May 18, 2012 Misc 16

I am so glad the weekend has started!  This was just one of those weeks where a lot of things made me angry. 

This was pretty irritating…clip_image002

Sunday – I spent all good chunk of Saturday outside doing yard work.  I could feel my allergies a bit Saturday night and when I woke up Sunday morning I was so incredibly miserable.  It was awful and nothing made me feel better.  I think I may have to get a mask.

But not nearly as irritating as this…

I accidentally post dated my Glimmer review and posted it partially written so when I went in and finished it and fixed the review date it was still there.  And since there is no way to remove a post from Google reader (trust me I tried) I’ve decided to just leave it and whatever.  There is an extra bonus review for this week and I’ll just be one short for next week.  It all works out in the end.

This made me angry…

Tuesday – One of my favorite shows ever, NCIS, had it’s season finale. I DVR pretty much everything now and I typically catch up on shows on Thursday night. Tuesday I was just chillin on twitter and less than 15 minutes after the show ended someone tweeted “noooo (insert name here).” Seriously? Really? I was so pissed!

1. Spoilers are just uncool no matter when they occur.
2. It’s not like I waited weeks to watch it where you could maybe say “I didn’t know you hadn’t watch it” it was mere minutes after it ended!  And even if it was weeks later it’s still bad to put something like that on twitter.  Or Facebook. 
3. Something else for people to think about in relation to tv shows – Just because you are in EST/CST and watching it at 9/8c doesn’t mean that people in MST and PST are watching it at the same time, because they are not!  You potentially just spoiled the show for people that haven’t even had the opportunity to watch it yet!

I know that sometimes people want to write about certain events in books/movies/tv shows that are spoilers and that’s fine – if there is a warning so I can make a choice. I can’t un-see what I just saw!

But this makes me Angrrrrry…

I’m not a pet person, ok?  It’s just not me.  So you know that if I am this angrrrry than it must be real bad.

clip_image002[18]Several weeks ago the house across the street from where I work had this dog that was outside 24/7.  It’s dog house was one of those dog carrier things and it was always tied up.  I never, not once, saw anyone go up to that dog.  The dog did not look too thin so I can only assume they were actually feeding it.  I would see the teenage boys (approximate age 15-20) taunting him.  It was so awful.  Unfortunately they weren’t breaking any laws and nothing could be done.  Then the dog went away so I hoped they just decided that it was too much work and gave it up.

A couple of days ago they got a new dog.  Friday we were sitting in the office just chatting when my supervisor freaked out and we all looked out the window to see them tossing and locking the dog in the shed.  Five, maybe ten, minutes later they took the dog out and chained up back up (same as the other dog).  An hour or so later they put the dog on the leash and start dragging him to the house.  Dragging him!  They are about three feet from the door and you can see the poor dog clawing at everything and they are laughing and yanking on the leash and lifting him up by the leash to get him in the house!  It absolutely breaks my heart that they are doing this.

It’s hard to get things like this taken care of, especially since we are not the 24/7 type of neighbors.  But rest assured, this situation will be resolved! 

 

Well, I certainly feel much better getting this stuff off my chest.  Thanks for being my sounding board!

    If you wore that mask for your allergies you’d at least get a couple of laughs.

    I try not to be spoilery but I forget sometimes. I know how irritating it can be though.

    I would have freaked about the dog. Poor thing. People can be such jerks!

    Kimberly sounds like you had a pretty crappy week but on the upside the weekend is here yea….

    I am not a animal person either and that is my own choice. I love animals. I hate when I see or hear about animal cruelity. It makes me sick. I always wonder why people like that have pets if they are going to treat them like that?

    OMG… puppy…. also, not that it’s not annoying, but Twitter is kind of built for spoilers… That’s the point of trending, I think. I don’t go on twitter if I don’t want to be spoiled. But that’s just my take. I never watch anything when it airs, so I won’t spoil you.

    Do you know what makes me angry? Not falling asleep until after 3 when I have to wake up at 6…. so tired! I hope this coming week is better.

    We totally have to rescue that dog, that shiz does not fly with me!

    And sorry, but I have to agree with Steph, Twitter is the place for spoilers. And I too had Grey’s Anatomy finale spoiled for me, and it’s so bad that I don’t know if I’ll watch the finale, let alone next season. We’ll see.

    Seriously, let’s go rescue that puppy!

    I must confess that I did mention my frustrations with HIMYM the other day on Facebook. But I understand why you were irritated by the twitter thing and I can guarantee you that Andrea will totally be on your side in all of this! She HATES spoilers!

    I can’t even comment on the whole puppy thing because…..I just can’t!!!

    As far as allergies go! Have you ever tried a neti pot? I adore mine! I would worship it if I could!

    I must confess that I posted my frustrations towards the season finale of HIMYM on facebook the other day. Sorry. But I understand why you were irritated by the twitter thing, and I can garuntee you that Andrea will totally be on your side in all of this! She HATES spoilers!

    Don’t even get me started on the whole puppy thing, I just can’t!

    And as far as your allergies go, have you ever tried a neti pot? I adore mine! I would worship it if I could!

    Yep, you’re right Bittner, I am on Kim’s side, and she & I already discussed it! Totally not cool, I don’t care if it’s on Twitter or Facebook or anywhere. If you mention something about a book/movie/TV show in a public place, and you’re mentioning some major event, you’ve just taken away other people’s reaction to that event. You got to have your own reaction to it – let me have my own!

    And the dog thing – I had a similar thing happen once and I called Animal Control. That shiz is NOT okay. I hope it all works out, and I hope this week is much better for you!
